  • KC1LKO : The computer is a MinisForum. Small computer... one of these: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07WXFVFQ1 It already came with Win10 and I did not do what I used to do in my Winodows days which is to wipe/install. Oh well. May do that if I can't figure this out soon. Got to love Windows 🙂 I actually do like the surface pro 7 tablet a lot. Both windows are my dedicated "ham" computers. Everything else is Mac or Linux.
  • W4IOD/Odis : Miguel that's why I stayed with Windows 7 works perfect here. Let us know what you find out please.
  • KB7SQS-Lance : Actually, all five of my nodes are running on refurbished dell computers.
  • W4IOD/Odis : Good deal no more issues Lance no worries.
  • KC1LKO : That is on "the list" of things to try. What I call the 60K mile service from the old days... fdisk/format/reinstall used to be the saying (I am showing my age) for what to do every once in a while... Windows 2/3/95/etc
  • KB7SQS-Lance : Per Chris' suggestion, I got a refurbished Dell with windows 10 for $179.00 and its been fine ever since
  • W4IOD/Odis : Lance that had to be very aggravating and frustrating 🙁
  • W4IOD/Odis : I hate Windows 10 for that very reason I've noticed especially after an update it wants to reassign the default audio devices sometimes& I have to go back and reconfigure everything.
  • KB7SQS-Lance : got a different computer. chased it for two months working with Yaesu. It was a brand new top of the line Dell computer, which I ended up sending back
  • KC1LKO : Thanks guys for the help. Will certainly report back once I know what the issue is. Will likely need to call Yaesu.
  • W4IOD/Odis : What did you do to fix it Lance?
  • W9AUV Terry : Has anyone gotten adms-7 to work for their ftm400xdr? I can backup to sd .dat files but adms-7 can't find the files on the sd card.
  • KB7SQS-Lance : i had that problem

  • AI5AI-Don : Chuck, forget my comments at this time. Thanks
  • AI5AI-Don : That is the type of cable we are using with ferrite beads installed
  • KEOYJJ : Chris. May I suggest for Felix that he Check the type of network cable in use I would ensure it is a minimum of CAT 6, and to use a 3 wrap of the cable around a ferrite.
  • KD9MGQ : Test
  • AI5AI-Don : Chuck, I have a comment
  • W4IOD/Odis : lol
  • K9EQ_Chris : That just means I'm probably behind with my security updates.
  • W4IOD/Odis : YSF status: 27 days, 22 hrs, 17 mins, 25 s
  • K9EQ_Chris : WOW!
  • W4IOD/Odis : Chris on the Kentucky Net Saturday evening we had a 101 folks check in the YSF worked perfect.
  • KB7SQS-Lance : yes the server you have us set up on is awesome
  • W4IOD/Odis : GE Lance
  • K9EQ_Chris : Hi Lance. All the hotspots working okay? I see Idaho is getting pretty active on YSF.
  • N0PXT_Shane : Great I'll try that after the net. Thank You.
  • KB7SQS-Lance : GE, All
  • K9EQ_Chris : Best way to adjust is to back off on the mic level until the audio level starts to drop. If you reduce gain, but the audio level doesn't change, it means y0u're clipping.
  • K9EQ_Chris : The parrot will just give you back what you gave it, so yes.
  • N0PXT_Shane : Thanks I have an FT70 that I had to change the mic gain but I was hoping the FT3 fixed that issue. Would the parrot room allow me to check that?
  • W4IOD/Odis : Yes 9 will be WAY too hot on C4FM
  • K9EQ_Chris : Probably best to run 3-4. What I do is talk in normal voice several inches from mic on digital, then climb on the mic and talk louder on FM.
  • W4IOD/Odis : I'm running my FT3D mic gain @ 3 on C4FM
  • K9EQ_Chris : You probably will be too hot. The FT3 and FT2 behave the same.
  • N0PXT_Shane : For those of you with a FT3 what Mic Gain setting are you running? I only ask because when talking analogue I have to have it set to 9 and I'm worried that will be way too hot for Fussion.
  • AI5AI-Don : Ye Ha!
  • W4IOD/Odis : HowdEE Don
  • W4IOD/Odis : Hello Shane
  • K9EQ_Chris : Will do
  • N8KPE /Pete : Check me in Chuck from Milford, Michigan listing on the General Motors repeater downtown Detroit.

  • K0ORK/Chuck : 73 all
  • KB7SQS-Lance : thats correct chris its 2 on the ft3
  • KB7SQS-Lance : aggred, c
  • K9EQ_Chris : I believe the main issue is that there is only a digital interface to the radio + speaker/mic. Which is different from the HRI-200 which provides analog signals on the 10-pin connector.
  • KB7SQS-Lance : understood. unfortunately, it still won't work.
  • W4IOD/Odis : Lance, he wants to try it in the portable HRI setup mode
  • KB7SQS-Lance : it won't work. pdn will only work on digital in access point

  • N0PXT_Shane : Good Evening All.
  • KEOYJJ : Chris I have my FTM 400 connected to my personal DX2 repeater. And every so often it starts transmitting for no reason and will not stop until I power it off. Any Ideas
  • W4IOD/Odis : GE all 2/17/2020 Time Warping there Cricket. 🙂
  • KEOYJJ : Chris it is the 17th unless I am not understanding?
  • K9EQ_Chris : Hello 20 Feb 2020
  • K9EQ_Chris : 73
  • n4wcq_rick : good nite folks
  • W4IOD/Odis : Thanks for joining us night all 73 de W4IOD
  • W4IOD/Odis : Welcome
  • W9AUV : Ok thanks for the help
  • W4IOD/Odis : Sounds like you have an issue with the FTM 100D might want to contact Yaesu
  • W9AUV : Just switched to 438.975 and tried xmit and no go
  • W4IOD/Odis : Try it now
  • VE3IGN_Don : Thanks John
  • W9AUV : ,15 rpt shift is set to simplex
  • W4IOD/Odis : Depending on where your are located try 438.975 for UHF
  • W9AUV : I need to be on uhf o
  • AD0MI_Pete : it's an old packet frequency
  • AD0MI_Pete : try 145.070
  • W9AUV : I need a simplex frequency then. Can you suggest one. I thought I had looked it up but apparently misled.
  • W4IOD/Odis : menu>config>#15 RPT Shift turn it to simplex
  • W4IOD/Odis : 446.050 has a repeater - offset which would put it at 441.050
  • AB3GD John : VE3IGN Don, Yes I heard the looping also but it seems to have cleared up.
  • KE0VQC_Matt : Had to restart my hotspot a couple times, but now it seems okay. Not sure why, but the looping did happen for me as well. Had checked in with a question, I may have missed the comeback because of the restarts.
  • W9AUV : Ft2d dgid is set to auto
  • W9AUV : 446.050
  • VE3IGN_Don : K Thanks
  • K9EQ_Chris : W9AUV what frequency is shown on the FT2 when you transmit?
  • K9EQ_Chris : No loop here.
  • KE0VQC : YSF
  • KE0VQC : Loop is happening on
  • VE3IGN_Don : Is it me or is there loop happening on YSF
  • W9AUV : Narrow is not checked
  • W9AUV : C4fm is blank and looks like it can't be changed
  • K9EQ_Chris : Do not select "Narrow Deviation" in File->Transceiver!
  • K9EQ_Chris : here=hear
  • K9EQ_Chris : If the FTM-100 is not receiving the signal, then nobody would here anything since there's no signal.
  • AD0MI=Pete : C4FM Detect under transceiver in WiresX should be 'signal'
  • W9AUV : I checked just now. The ftm100 is receiving o
  • AD0MI=Pete : and is the DGID on both your FT2 and in the WiresX software 00?
  • W9AUV : I don't think so o
  • AD0MI=Pete : he's asking does your FTM100 show it's receiving a signal when you transmit to it?
  • K9EQ_Chris : What does the FTM-100 do?
  • W9AUV : I don't see anything happen on wiresx when i transmit to my ftm100
  • K9EQ_Chris : Okay, but how about the receiver.
  • W9AUV : The red ligjt comes on when I transmit on the ft2.o
  • K9EQ_Chris : Also be sure that you DO NOT have any of the radios in "narrow" mode. This is not DN vs VW, but an option that reduces the RF bandwidth.
  • K9EQ_Chris : You should see the Rx light turn on on the node radio and the software should indicate that reception is taking place. If those are not happening then your signal is not making it to your computer.
  • W4IOD/Odis : Try Direct
  • W9AUV : Rf
  • W4IOD/Odis : Are you doing it direct or RF?
  • W9AUV : I tried calling just now and it is not going through
  • W4IOD/Odis : A/B button
  • W4IOD/Odis : Try pushing the A?B to switch from RF to direct as well
  • W4IOD/Odis : Either that or the frequencies don't match up or the MOSFET'S have given out.
  • AD0MI=Pete : or you somehow banned your radio from your own node, but you'd really have to try to do that.
  • AD0MI=Pete : gotta be DGID, then.
  • W9AUV : And I could connect to their room. No the ft2d is not shifting on xmit.
  • W4IOD/Odis : Is your radio
  • W4IOD/Odis : Is your doing a repeater shift when you key up?
  • W9AUV : Yes dn. I could bear them.o
  • W4IOD/Odis : Just double checking what mode is the FT2D in DN?
  • W9AUV : Yes, we fixed that problem last Monday. It is setup simplex on wires-x o
  • W4IOD/Odis : Is the transmit frequency setup without reverse on the transceiver settings on your WiresX software? it's simplex Correct?
  • W9AUV : I could not see my ft2 show as transmitting via the wires-x screen
  • W4IOD/Odis : Does your software show you transmitting?
  • W9AUV : Yes, dgid is 00. I tried Oklahoma link net and rv net and could hear them ok but I could not talk to them.
  • W4IOD/Odis : Try 444.050 or 444.125 Rick
  • n4wcq_rick : i meant Odis is your room linked to MNWis?
  • W4IOD/Odis : Rick yes I don't have the bridge in because someone thought it would be a good idea to keep the reflector keyed up for 766 seconds straight.
  • W4IOD/Odis : Shouldn't be an issue do you have your DGID set to 00?
  • n4wcq_rick : dois is your room linked to minwis?
  • W9AUV : I was testing out my room yesterday evening. I could hear people but could not talk to them. Would that be because my room is digital only?
  • KEOYJJ : Good evening All
  • K9EQ_Chris : GE
  • W4IOD/Odis : Good Evening all 2/10/2020
  • AB3GD John : I think I have seen the LATE ENTRY flag when on DMR via a hotspot. I believe LATE ENTRY just means that some of the packets in a given data stream were LATE in arrival but the impact in amatuer radio is usually minimal as Chris noted.
  • AI5AI-Don : Good Night everyone 73
  • K9EQ_Chris : GE
  • W4IOD/Odis : Everyone have a great evening and thanks for joining us 73 de W4IOD sk sk
  • AD0MI/Pete : no, the repeater is up but it seems like the WiresX node is down.
  • KEOYJJ : I Meant there is a VW net.. Sorry
  • KE0YTU : Is the Burnsville Repeater down?
  • KEOYJJ : The is a VW net
  • KEOYJJ : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vciN6uH90X8
  • KEOYJJ : go to yaesu play FT-2DRDE PDN (Personal Digital Node) - Part 2 HRI u0026 PDN Modes
  • KEOYJJ : The cables are for fM audio
  • KC1LKO/Miguel : Ok. First on the AOL and then I somehow missed that this was WiresX net and not a Yaesu focused net. Sorry about that.
  • KC1LKO/Miguel : LOL. Right. That is what I meant. Flashback from the old days.
  • KC1LKO/Miguel : Ask if it is america online room... I believe the repeater owner has blocked it and the FT70 says busy?
  • KEOYJJ : tell him to turn it off
  • KEOYJJ : He is asking about chanel busy
  • KEOYJJ : Greetings All
  • AB8DT : Good evening all

  • W4IOD/Odis : Night all 73 de W4IOD sk sk
  • KEOYJJ : Thanks for a great net.. Im clear 73's
  • KEOYJJ : Yeasu Video on PDN describes not connecting
  • W9LOL : If the repeater is not connected to a room, he will have to hit the "X" button first
  • AI5AI-Don : He is probably still in the command mode
  • KE0YJJ : yes
  • AB8DT : All you wanted to know but forgot to ask
  • KE0YJJ : I suggest the Yaesu official video on-line step by step
  • AI5AI-Don : YES
  • KB7SQS-Lance : Chuck, I think he will need to know upper of lower case
  • AI5AI-Don : lower case or upper
  • W4IOD/Odis : Glad it resolved your issue Rick
  • KB7SQS-Lance : Meant to say I Was WRONG not Chuck
  • AB3GD John : Thanks Odis! I hear it now.
  • KB7SQS-Lance : Chuck was wrong on the page. Click File, Click General Settings, Check unlimited TOT
  • KE0YJJ : Setting the timeout to unlimited resolved my issue
  • W4IOD/Odis : John the net is in progress
  • AB3GD John : I assume there is no net tonight ?
  • W4IOD/Odis : Hey your the man on DGID 😉
  • AI5AI-Don : Thanks
  • W4IOD/Odis : Hi Don yes it was me 🙂
  • K0ORK/Chuck : sorry did not mean to Don
  • AI5AI-Don : Howdy all from Texas

  • AB3GD John : Is there a net tonight ?
  • AI5AI-Don : Still on line Odis?
  • W4IOD/Odis : Night all 73 de W4IOD
  • AI5AI-Don : Good night all 73
  • KC1LKO/Miguel : Thanks 🙂
  • AI5AI-Don : static IP address
  • AI5AI-Don : Probably in command mode
  • WQ0A Mike : Understand, Pete. Seems something changed on that repeater. Doesn't take much for things to get a mind of their own!
  • AD0MI/Pete : I figured as much Mike. Unfortunately I'm not able to hit a UHF repeater in Owatonna from Forest Lake 🙂
  • WQ0A Mike : He can simply contact the repeater owner. Dave, WB0VAK will respond.
  • WQ0A Mike : 444.450 is the WB0VAK repeater Owatonna
  • KC1LKO/Miguel : Great info for sure on hamoperator.com... spent some time on it last week... some "gems" like this one "FTM-100 Tx Power Adjustment" are very promising.
  • KC1LKO/Miguel : Hello all
  • AI5AI-Don : Hey Odis
  • W4IOD/Odis : Good Evening all 1/20/20
  • W4IOD/Odis : Hello Don
  • AI5AI-Don : Howdy from Texas 1/20/2020
  • W4IOD/Odis : Good evening all 73 de W4IOD
  • KC1LKO/Miguel : swappa.com
  • K9EQ_Chris : Yes - Android
  • K9EQ_Chris : Yes there are.
  • KC1LKO/Miguel : Another +1 on K9EQ's recommendations on Android, iOS
  • AB3GD John : Are there any real virus or malware threats on ios or android tablets ?
  • KC1LKO/Miguel : all this is good info that Chris is saying on this net. Kudos.
  • KC1LKO/Miguel : BTW, this whole thing on Windows is due to Yaesu having chosen an OS that was not meant to do this... (even though most ATMs ran OS2 then some Windows variant...) They should have chosen linux and open source the thing and allow it to be containerized, hosted, etc etc etc. LOL. Back to the "ham hobby"
  • KC1LKO/Miguel : just reading this now. Thanks... Yes, Wolf, you expanded on a possible solution there. One windows computer is MS Surface tablet (no fan) and the other is a MinisForum I am trying out ("smart fan") and may want to "downgrade" to the MinisForum version without fan 🙂 Thanks again 🙂
  • W4IOD/Odis : Wolf simple enough & no worries.
  • WO1VES - Wolf : He will just have to build a couple liquid cooled computers with passive heat exchangers. Haha
  • W4IOD/Odis : I bet those computers wont have any running fans hi hi 🙂
  • WO1VES - Wolf : He also wants to host a room, and not output 5 watts. That's why I was thinking of eliminating the radio completely. No radio, no fan noise. His HRI-200 would basically act as a room hosting server, and when he needs to connect to his room, he can just use the handheld at half a watt. He won't save any electricity though, as he now has to run two computers.
  • W4IOD/Odis : Hello Wolf, I think Miguel was asking how to eliminating the fan noise from his shack. i.e. The switch to a full time HT on low power.
  • W4IOD/Odis : Miguel no a "lightbulb" Ah ha moment I understand now what you were asking. 🙂
  • WO1VES : What about setting up the HRI-200 to run with an analog radio? You could set it up to host the room, and just don't plug in a radio. Use the handheld whenever you want to connect to your room on it's own computer.
  • KC1LKO/Miguel : Thanks Odis. Was the "wow" because I am doing something odd here?
  • W4IOD/Odis : Wow better understand now Miguel good luck.
  • KC1LKO/Miguel : Yup. aware of portable HRI mode key combo and that ft2, ft3, ftm100 and ftm400 can do that. Want to know how to host a room and not have to use ftm100 for functions of participating in OTHER rooms (america link, mnwis, etc)
  • W4IOD/Odis : X & Back button will put you in Portable HRI mode on the FT2D
  • KC1LKO/Miguel : for the current question 🙂
  • KC1LKO/Miguel : digital vs digital/analog ?
  • KC1LKO/Miguel : ugh... sorry not sure what button to use to do new line here... 2. stop the ftm100/hri-200 combo during participation. 3. other?
  • W4IOD/Odis : Sorry Miguel you lost me on that one.
  • KC1LKO/Miguel : 1. use 2nd windows box and donate ft2 or ft3 and set them to LOW1 power.
  • KC1LKO/Miguel : Ok... need to use a small win box as donor controller for wiresx... need to use a radio... in this case, it can be ft2, ft3, ft400, ft100. That is to "get on" wires-x. To also host a room, you need hri200, but then are limited to ft400/ft100 ONLY as the 'donor' radio. So, if wanting to host a room (I know, most will not...) then to avoid hearing the constant fan of the ft100 when participating as a node (like this net)... I see following options:
  • W4IOD/Odis : Hello Miguel
  • W4IOD/Odis : Hi Ron sorry fingers got carried away.
  • KC1LKO/Miguel : Hello
  • W4IOD/Odis : Hello Roon
  • K9EQ_Chris : Hello all

  • AB3GD John : K9EQ, I just watched your TAPR video on "Fusion from the inside" and thought it was very well done and very informative. I was surprised when I saw my callsign in
  • AB3GD John : Thanks for the update Chris/K9EQ ! I could tell something was still not quite right.
  • Chris/K9EQ : Basically the opposite problem as what we had before.
  • Chris/K9EQ : Looks like a failure at the Dayton repeater site. YSF is going into WiRES-X but because of the Tx failure, it's not hearing WiRES-X.
  • AB3GD John : Is YSF still down at this point ?

  • K9EQ Chris : XDR construction is the same as the DR with respect to how the vocoder is mounted.
  • N9UPC : When you are using the screen timeout timer you MUST enter a password in it to work. It looks like it is defaulted to 0000 but it is not actually 0000
  • N9UPC : Actually it is done and does not Tx the GPS data down the network from the donor radio because it is only used for the RF side of the node.

  • AI5AI Don : yep
  • K9EQ Chris : Probably not.
  • K9EQ Chris : Unknown if the audio for both repeaters is bridged between them.
  • K9EQ Chris : Don: N9UPC has a scheme where he adds an FM transmitter and makes it behave as two repeaters: One digital and one FM. With appropriate filters, both could be on the same band.
  • W4IOD/Odis : You are correct Don
  • AI5AI Don : Chuck, only one xmtr and 2 rec
  • K9EQ Chris : That's been my impression with digital voice on HF. More people talking about it than talking using it.
  • K0ORK/Chuck : OK I will call you
  • AI5AI Don : ok
  • K0ORK/Chuck : Don can you help on LAN?
  • W4IOD/Odis : I've heard of it Chris but no I haven't tried it .

  • KA1CNF : Hi Odis, thanks for your suggestions. Yes an amp would work but club does not have one right now and would cost $. Just looking for way to use existing hardware. Probably keep as spare, it has been reliable for almost 2 years in operation. We could also sell it as it is past the 1 year time limit...Steve
  • W4IOD/Odis : Have a great evening 73 all de W4IOD
  • W4IOD/Odis : Chris, …..Gary was on the US Kentucky YSF
  • W4IOD/Odis : I would not try to use a repeater as a simple node I would put it back in the box and keep it as a backup repeater before doing that but that's me.
  • W4IOD/Odis : Well if you use the FTM100D as a node radio and need more than 5 watts you could always add a amplifier.
  • KA1CNF : On advantage we thought of having DR1X over FTM100 as a node radio is safely running 50 watts output
  • KA1CNF : GE- as a follow up to my question about using DR1X as simplex node, I realize if it could reasonably be done it is overkill. But it will be available when we get the DR2X ordered this weekend. Club will then have the DR1X but do not have an "extra" node radio, unless we set up a new repeater freq and location

  • K9EQ Chris : Epson is ET-3750
  • VE3IGN Don : sorry John your turn
  • VE3IGN Don : now what about the OpenSpot 1 vs DV4mini for bridging?
  • AB3GD John : Chris, would you happen to know which model of Epson/Ecotank your sister in law is using that she is pleased with ?
  • VE3IGN Don : excellent thanks
  • K9EQ Chris : No advantage, there's already enough.
  • VE3IGN Don : yes what about more memory?
  • K9EQ Chris : I don't think the Pi4 will offer any improvement. Downside is that it takes more power.
  • K9EQ Chris : AB3GD: Yes, Epson
  • VE3IGN Don : Yep, I use it on a Pi3+ would like to try it on a Pi4
  • AB3GD John : I assume that is the Epson EcoTank series of printers ?

  • AB3GD John : Seems like the OpenSpot is still the more stable hotspot to use overall.

  • W4IOD/Odis : I agree with Chris I use an original OpenSpot as a bridge here

  • N0KEW : Oh shoot. I was listening to iss sstv. I forgot I had wires x set to auto connect to mnwis
  • W4IOD/Odis : GN all 73 de W4IOd 9-9-19
  • W4IOD/Odis : Pictures will not go across WIRESX network.
  • K0ORK/Chuck : GE Rod good to hear you
  • AD0TG/ Rod : Hello fellow Net participants.
  • KB7SQS-Lance : Thanks for the input Mike
  • WQ0A Mike : Yes, the US MVARC Idaho reflector has been working flawlessly for me.
  • KB7SQS-Lance : Lol No problem Chris
  • K9EQ Chris : Lance: I see WQ0A has been connected to your YSF Reflector. BTW, I think it was cockpit error that killed the reflectors yesterday. That's what happens when I have 8 shell windows open and type "shutdown -h now" in the wrong one.
  • VE3IGN Don : he dropped out
  • KB7SQS-Lance : GE
  • VE3IGN Don : I hear you both on YSF and Wires-X
  • AD0MI : no
  • K0ORK/Chuck : did his time out take down mounds view?
  • VE3IGN Don : 3 minute timeout
  • VE3IGN Don : GE all
  • W4IOD/Odis : GE all you too Chris. 🙂 9-9-19

  • W4IOD/Odis : Night all 73 de W4IOD
  • KI7PRU/ BILL : Great chat tonight. Listening till 7pm Pacific time when my local club net start -AI7HO
  • N0KEW : Listening on 444.825 I also did not hear those two stations.
  • ve5rs/ron : I am hearing everyone ok on ysf and wires x
  • K3MR : Now i hear you.
  • K3MR : Now not hearing you, Chris. Getting a carrier.
  • K3MR : Not hearing AD8DP nor VA3WM on YSF.
  • KB0VXN Mike : Hello all, just listening along at work. Ft3 works great as a pdn
  • ve5rs/ron : by the way I am happy with the ft3
  • ve5rs/ron : Thanks for the clock info I have a ft3 and that was my question
  • W0TJW Terry : The clock display on the FT-3DR is accessed by pressing the DISP button. Then on the compass display, touch the center of the compass. This will display the clock and the GPS satellites with your Lat , Lon and altitude.
  • ve5rs/ron : test
  • ve5rs : Hello
  • VE3IGN Don : Hi Chris, thanks for being here on the net.
  • Chris K9EQ : Hello Don
  • VE3IGN Don : Good evening all,
  • N0KEW : Hi.
  • WQ0A Mike : Using three low power laptops with Windows 10 for nodes and they have been trouble free. But I limit the updating by listing the network as "metered."
  • K3MR : FT2DR is 24 hour only. Maybe the FT3DR is 12 only. I wonder if the FT3DE is 24 hours.
  • Chris K9EQ : Hello Odis, Rod
  • AD0TG/ Rod : Good Evening from St Paul
  • W4IOD/Odis : Check your email K9EQ
  • W4IOD/Odis : GE all 9/2/19

  • N0KEW : Bummer man, I cant join the minwis room?!?!
  • AI5AI Don : Good night to all! 73
  • W4IOD/Odis : Ge All Happy Labor day 73 de W4IOD
  • AI5AI Don : You are right Chuck! They do not listen! you said to give one minute to disconnect. Someone has to key up right after you close.
  • K0OQL : Good net Chuck, thank you!
  • K0OQL : I’ve found the whole listening to NCS is pretty much optional at this point.
  • K0ORK/Chuck : no net next week
  • K0OQL : Is there a net next Monday?? Ha!
  • W5PPR Glenn : Thanks everyone
  • W4IOD/Odis : N0KEW hello
  • W4IOD/Odis : Chris, the PTT thing with the WiresX menu up.
  • AD0MI : twitchy PTT finger.
  • W4IOD/Odis : Chuck, I’ve found the whole listening to NCS is pretty much optional at this point.
  • K9EQ Chris : Listen to what?
  • K0ORK/Chuck : why do hams not listen?
  • N0KEW : hi
  • K9EQ Chris : Get ready for what?
  • W4IOD/Odis : Get ready Chris
  • W4IOD/Odis : Oh boy
  • K9EQ Chris : Hi Don
  • W4IOD/Odis : GE Don
  • AI5AI Don : Hello All
  • W4IOD/Odis : GE all 8/26
  • K9EQ Chris : GE 2019-08-26
  • VE3IGN Don : There we go..
  • guest_5336 : oops sorry about that...VE3IGN Don
  • guest_5336 : Oh yes it is https://www.wireshark.org/
  • AB3GD : Thanks guest 5336. I didn't know Wireshark (formally Ethereal) was still around.
  • K0ORK/Chuck : good night all
  • guest_5336 : Wireshark
  • W4IOD/Odis : Good eve 73 de W4IOD
  • N4HZX Tom : Good night all!
  • AI5AI Don : 73 everyone
  • N0PXT Shane : 73 all
  • AB3GD : Monitor my PC wireless interface.
  • AB3GD : What is currently available as far as packet tracing software ? I am looking for something I can use to
  • W4IOD/Odis : HRI 200 will not work on a 991A
  • W4IOD/Odis : Thank you very much Chris
  • N4HZX Tom : Good info Chris.. thanks
  • W4IOD/Odis : Ouch!
  • K9EQ Chris : The best program to test SD cards I have found is h2testw.exe. It will write every byte of a card and then verify it.
  • K9EQ Chris : I believe the card "class" just refers to the speed. However there are different specifications. The original spec wouldn't support more than 4 GB - not enough address bits. The radio should format the card correctly (i.e., FAT32).
  • N0PXT Shane : No worries. I was doing some quick research and I found one article saying you should not use the class 10 SD cards for the FT2. But I use a class 10 on my FTM400. I wouldn't think Yaesu would dictate two different speed SD cards for different radios.
  • KB7SQS-Lance : That was an interesting question
  • W4IOD/Odis : that information is in the PDF file in the HRI software download
  • W4IOD/Odis : Shane, I don't have them to provide that information I was just curious asking for a friend type thing.
  • N0PXT Shane : With the SD cards what speed class are they? Are they Class 10 or slower? Just trying to find a pattern
  • W4IOD/Odis : lol Pete
  • KB7SQS-Lance : The way I figured it out, one of our nodes hadn't updated and he was the only one that wasn't having ports issues.
  • AD0MI : viiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiicccccctttttooooooooooooooor aaaaaaaaaaaaaaalphhhhhhhhaaaaaaaaaaaaa ttthhhhhreeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee whiiiiiiiiiiskeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeey miiiiiiiiiiiiiiiikeeeee
  • W4IOD/Odis : Please make it stop...…..
  • W4IOD/Odis : Shane, its just weird the cards work in the FTM 400 and the FT2 just not recognized in the FT3D
  • W4IOD/Odis : Lance, I have no connection issues here whatsoever weird.
  • KB7SQS-Lance : It's weird. Some computers work fine and others don't. We had 4 nodes that had the issue. I had one node that was always popping in and out of the room and as soon as I went to 1.51 he no longer had any issues staying connected.
  • W4IOD/Odis : He has it in PDN mode not portable HRI setup.
  • N0PXT Shane : Could it be a formatting issue with the SD cards? It may require FAT32 formatting or another standard to make it recognize it.
  • W4IOD/Odis : Chris, I just checked mine here on the HRI 200 running 1.530 all are red NG but it is working on my local IP
  • K9EQ Chris : Lance: Interesting. The node I have on a VPN passes the port check while the node that is using the local IP doesn't.
  • W4IOD/Odis : Chris, thanks I think all of Phil's cards were older 3Gig micro SD cards so that might be the issue.
  • K9EQ Chris : There are different MicroSD card standards. Maybe the FT3 can't work with the older standard that is used on smaller cards? < 4 GB
  • W4IOD/Odis : Tom, thanks I think Phil was using a ScanDisk micro SD card
  • N4HZX Tom : Im seeing in the social media circles that the 32gb Samsung Gold card seems to work well.
  • AI5AI Don : no fun now
  • W4IOD/Odis : That's right just like a soup sandwich he's all over it 🙂
  • K9EQ Chris : He is. Talks softly. And when he does the whole network listens.
  • N4HZX Tom : haha
  • W4IOD/Odis : Chuck is like Perry Mason 🙂
  • W4IOD/Odis : Don I feel ya
  • K9EQ Chris : Yup, packet doubing
  • W4IOD/Odis : There is something funky going on with VA3WM audio....now batting # WOW!!
  • AI5AI Don : That audio hurts
  • W4IOD/Odis : To, my traffic is in regards to a memory card issue with the FT3D
  • N4HZX Tom : Good Evening Odis! Back on the chat room. I had forgotten about this new service.
  • W4IOD/Odis : GE Tom
  • N4HZX Tom : Good Evening!
  • N0PXT Shane : Evening All
  • AI5AI Don : Thanks, Yes I will
  • K9EQ Chris : Ah, that three letter group decodes. Interesting! I'm sure it will go well. We'll be thinking about you! Hey, bring an HT along to check for EMI before you leave. 🙂
  • AI5AI Don : "ICD"
  • AI5AI Don : Chris, tomorrow is D day for the installation of an "IDC"
  • W4IOD/Odis : GE all 8-19
  • K9EQ Chris : Hello Don, Lance
  • AI5AI Don : Hello all
  • ka0jum : hi
  • KB7SQS-Lance : Chris, 1.51 fixed all of my wires-x and computer issues
  • KB7SQS-Lance : GE 8.19.2019
  • K9EQ Chris : GE 2019-08-19
  • K9EQ Chris : 73
  • KB7SQS-Lance : 73
  • W4IOD/Odis : Good night Chris 73 all de W4IOD
  • K9EQ Chris : 73
  • N0PXT Shane : Time to walk the dog. So, 73 from here but I'll continue listening in.
  • N0PXT Shane : Good Point!
  • W4IOD/Odis : Redundancy is totally underrated 😉
  • N0PXT Shane : If you have an FT2 are you considering upgrading? I have an FT70 so I'm interested in upgrading but will probably wait for a bit so the major bugs can be worked out.
  • WW8X : Thanks for the follow-up on hotspots, Chris!
  • KM4NHN-Joe : Most hotspots only transmit in miliwatts
  • KM4NHN-Joe : Some loggers have an option for C4FM as a mode
  • W4IOD/Odis : I think Al's issue with openspot on his display is the other station has an openspot bridged and Al may be transmitting with the WIRES X menu open.
  • W4IOD/Odis : You can log it VOI
  • K9EQ Chris : The OpenSpot can provide a confirmation response. If someone is using an OS such that it is bridging to WiRES-X, then when someone keys up on WiRES-X, the OS will respond back with the confirmation report and cause WiRES-X to key up.
  • WW8X : Sounds good now.
  • KM4NHN-Joe : I noticed a couple but they only last a second or 2
  • KB7SQS-Lance : Everything sounds good to me
  • WW8X : Anyone else noticing some occasional drop-outs? I'm on wires-x. And now it all went silent.
  • KM4NHN-Joe : Good evening everyone
  • KB7SQS-Lance : GE
  • Ruffers : I’m out in my gazebo right now and it’s starting to rain and I’m worried about the lightning bugs outside are going to get electrocuted.
  • N0PXT Shane : I’ve tried and I can get it to save americalink and parrot and both will be there when I go back into WoresX. It will store MNWis but will not save it once you exit woresX. I heard lChris mention we shouldn’t transmit while in WiresX mode when using a hotspot so I always back out after changing rooms.
  • K9EQ Chris : Well, give it a try. There are problems keeping the radio in WiRES-X control mode when talking. Probably depends on version of hotspot software.
  • Ruffers : Chrome screen sharing is an option depending how you feel about Google
  • N0PXT Shane : I read that the FT70 will not save YSF reflectors in the C memories C1, C2 etc when you are in WiresX. But it will save some but not the MNWis reflector. Any ideas?
  • K9EQ Chris : Hello all.
  • Ruffers : The picture of the poor FT3DR with the case needs to breath...let it out!
  • W4IOD/Odis : GE all 8-12-19
  • ka0jum : hi
  • N0PXT. Shane : Evening all.
  • K9EQ Chris : GE 2019-08-12
  • K9EQ Chris : 73
  • W4IOD/Odis : Night all 73 de W4IOD
  • W4IOD/Odis : pausing here
  • W4IOD/Odis : Club function
  • W4IOD/Odis : Yes sir
  • K9EQ Chris : It's on his end.
  • W4IOD/Odis : Oh my
  • W4IOD/Odis : HRI 200 ver 1.01 you have to remove the cover and move the switch on the board to do the firmware & return the switch for normal operation
  • W4IOD/Odis : Chris, I have no clue but it was bouncing an echo here so I disconnected & reconnected that fixed the echo issue. Easy fix
  • K9EQ Chris : The YSF reflectors were not impacted by the outage as those servers are in New York. We lost our bridge to the MNWis YSF server.
  • W4IOD/Odis : I saw that dropped the connection to MNWIS & reconnected K9EQ had issues with the internet earlier so K9EQ MNWIS & US Kentucky are on same server. bouncing echo. Sorry but looks good at the moment here.
  • n4wcq_rick : yes it is fine now
  • W4IOD/Odis : Sounding better now the?
  • n4wcq_rick : something did it quit repeating a bit ago
  • W4IOD/Odis : Rick, did that fix the reflector?
  • KB7SQS-Lance : That was due to the good old openspot
  • n4wcq_rick : odis the reflector seems have gone crazy
  • KB7SQS-Lance : Chris, I'm not sure that I was able to make the point of how important it is to keep the radio Firmware updated.
  • N0KEW : Oh man. The FT3 looks so cool!!
  • N0KEW : Yeah. I suppose that’s true. I thought there were issues with latency for fusion on 44 tho. I am probably misremembering
  • K9EQ Chris : N0KEW: The only benefit I can see is that you can have multiple IPv4 addresses so you can run more than one HRI-200 node.
  • N0KEW : I don’t get the 44net. It makes no sense to me. I have a few addresses but there’s no reason I can think to use them. I’m more excited about the ipv6 space but I’m not running any servers so :/
  • N0KEW : Hsmm mesh maybe? There’s nobody really doing it around here.
  • W4IOD/Odis : Had some internet connectivity issues tonight that might explain the drop outs.
  • AB3GD : Net seems to have cut out.
  • n4wcq_rick : ge odis
  • KB7SQS-Lance : Thanks
  • W4IOD/Odis : GE Rick
  • W4IOD/Odis : Yes Lance Loud & Clear
  • KB7SQS-Lance : Did you hear me Odie?
  • n4wcq_rick : silence is golden
  • W4IOD/Odis : Ground control to Major Tom 🙂
  • KB7SQS-Lance : did I get out Chris?
  • AG4VA : Good evening Chris.
  • K9EQ Chris : AG4VA: Hello
  • AG4VA : Cool chat feature.
  • N0KEW : Hey guys. Just popping by to say hi.
  • K9EQ Chris : GE 2019-08-05
  • W4IOD/Odis : GE all 8/5
  • AD0TG : howdy
  • ka0jum : night
  • W4IOD/Odis : Good night all 73 de W4IOD
  • W4IOD/Odis : Rick, if you would like to test it I will be back in my room #43114
  • W4IOD/Odis : Chris great explanation thanks.
  • n4wcq_rick : I have it in direct mode right now
  • W4IOD/Odis : Yes sir a lot of folks have made mention of that make sure your on low power because in access point it is transmitting while you are listening on your FT 70
  • n4wcq_rick : weird the radio fan comes on when anyone is talking?
  • n4wcq_rick : I am a glutton for punishment
  • n4wcq_rick : I know 🙂
  • W4IOD/Odis : Rick, the whole RT System programing software thing is overrated anyhow. 😉
  • n4wcq_rick : took me forever to get the yaesu ft70 softw to allow me to import a spreadsheet
  • W4IOD/Odis : Whew!!! congratulations RICK!!
  • n4wcq_rick : not what the manual says though
  • n4wcq_rick : yea that worked I am in the room now
  • W4IOD/Odis : From normal operation press & hold DX & GM button while turning on the power. It should be in portable HRI mode now.
  • n4wcq_rick : if the net goes down you can blame me
  • n4wcq_rick : yea looks better now
  • W4IOD/Odis : Then press B VFO Knob to toggle between direct (Mic) and Access point
  • n4wcq_rick : say what I only have two hands
  • K9EQ Chris : MNWis is an analog/digital room so you can't connect to it using a digital-only mode.
  • W4IOD/Odis : Come out of PDN mode the hold the GM DX buttons while pressing power. Should now be in mobile HRI Mode
  • W4IOD/Odis : Rick, that's your problem you need to be in portable HRI mode
  • n4wcq_rick : I am in pdn mode
  • W4IOD/Odis : Rick, your not in portable HRI mode.
  • n4wcq_rick : it won't let me connect because it is busy
  • W4IOD/Odis : Rick the SCU 20 that came with the FTM400 is all you need for Digital.
  • W4IOD/Odis : no you don't not for Digital just for analog signals you will see analog but want hear it without the patch cable
  • n4wcq_rick : I need an optional cable for the portable hri mode
  • W4IOD/Odis : Rick do you have it setup on the FTM400?
  • W4IOD/Odis : You want get in the MNWIS room on PDN
  • W4IOD/Odis : Rick you can do the PDN but what you want is the mobile HRI setup.
  • n4wcq_rick : was going to try and connect to the MNWis room but I am afraid to during the net
  • n4wcq_rick : GE Odis,
  • W4IOD/Odis : GE Rick
  • n4wcq_rick : I am trying to get the pdn software going
  • W4IOD/Odis : Chris, I have discovered it doesn't like any of the DV4 products bangs the crap out of the software & repeater here and disconnects from the room on every transmission.
  • K9EQ Chris : Copy no problems with 1.530.
  • W4IOD/Odis : GE Gary
  • ka0jum : hi
  • W4IOD/Odis : Chris running Wires X Software 1.530 here without issues thus far behaving nicely with the YSF reflector.
  • W4IOD/Odis : GE All 7-29
  • K9EQ Chris : GE 2019-07-29
  • guest_7443 : has any one used the new 7250 radio for hookup to wire's X
  • ka0jum : night
  • W4IOD/Odis : Night all 73 de W4IOD
  • W4IOD/Odis : GE Chris
  • K9EQ Chris : GE: 2019-07-22
  • W4IOD/Odis : GE All 7-22-19
  • ka0jum : hi
  • AB3GD : I think there may be something going on which is affecting more than just MNWIS.
  • guest_5190 : guess there in no net tonight?
  • ka0jum : where is the net
